Metolius got this just right for going light.
Perfect for a day of sport climbing: It fits 1 rope, harness, shoes and draws, candybars, and a water bottle. You can clip your helmet, draws or whathave you to the outside.
Perfect for long climbs with hike off: Fits 2 pairs of approach shoes, rain jacket, headlamp and 2 nalgenes. You might have difficulty getting the full rack in with the rope, but for a team of two you can carry that on your harness.
I can fit a pair of Doubles in this bag as well.
The pack is well made, i haven't had any problems and the tarp is still without holes. The cord closure, zipper, and strap work great.
Gripes: The Top flap could be longer to cover to top when you over stuff the pack. The side pockets are unusable when the pack is overstuffed.
